DESCRIPTION

This session will provide research findings with application beyond Texas. Attendees will participate in a data walk and learn how to replicate this data-driven approach to systems thinking with their local stakeholders. Attendees will receive campus-based recommendations for strengthening math pathways and engage in conversation about how to adapt lessons learned, research and tools to their local context.

Agenda:
Policy Context (10 minutes) – Sharing of major K12 & Higher Ed policy changes in Texas
Longitudinal Research Presentation (30 minutes) – Focus on 3 major equity gaps in middle school (income, race, and rural)
Data Walk (15 minutes) – Demonstrate how large cross-sector audiences can explore data together and discuss systemic barriers
Small Group Conversations (10 minutes) – Participants consider first steps for their work in building strong math pathways at home
Wrap-up (5 minutes) – Discuss who needs to be at the table and how to leverage relationships with funders
